Barbara Peirson

Barbara is an Essex based artist who mainly paints in acrylics. She is interested in figurative landscapes, estuary life and still life.

Though essentially a painter of landscapes, her paintings often draw upon half-remembered images perhaps from plays, imagined characters, moments caught in time, and forgotten fragments of text. These are then fused with the environment that surrounds her – the mud flats, water meadows, big skies and sea.

 "Dawn is my favourite time of day, it's a quiet secret world. I go walking early in the morning with a sketch book and camera. I like to draw the cows or sea birds half-hidden in the mists that rise from the estuary or the reeds, catching the first light.”

 Barbara is a member of the esteemed Contemporary British Painting group.
